That would actually be kind of funny.

You mean how do you make it hilarious.

And they actually burned the evidence of their mistake.

Place the wrong body in an open coffin


Then just close the frickin' coffin casket. Problem solved.

I lol'd at the headline. I'm not going to ask if that makes me a bad person, because I know it does.

Perhaps he was only mostly dead?

Seriously. My family would find that hysterical.

I always thought open casket funerals were creepy to begin with. And everyone gets in line to "view" it. Just seems morbid. Anyway, I feel that if I die in a way where an open casket is possible, I've failed.
 
2012-12-20 04:30:36 PM
Just don't open the bottom half of the coffin. You might vomit.
 
2012-12-20 04:31:57 PM
Just prop the guy up in the coffin, put some eyeglasses and a hat on his head and put a racing form in his hands. No one will notice.

Gotta make sure he's dead.

Forgetting to dig the hole before the procession arrives from the church is another good way. My mother was not amused.

If mine isn't lead-lined and unsafe to open for the next thousand years, I've failed.

Dear farking god, I know that place. Didn't know it crossed borders.

I was gonna say morbidly obese strippers, but that works, too.

Didn't read the article, but that's a terrible situation I can personally relate to.

When my wife and I had our first baby, she had a fatal birth defect and only survived for 30 minutes after being born. We'd known it was going to happen for several months, but it was still the most painful experience of my life. A week or so after the funeral, we went back to the cemetery to see the newly installed headstone, only to find that it had been placed on the grave of another child. My wife went absolutely hysterical and I stormed into the cemetery office ready to make some heads roll. Of course, the cemetery director was absolutely aghast and had it fixed the next day, but it felt like the emotional wound that was still so fresh had just been ripped wide open again. I know mistakes happen, but funerary services should really have flawless quality control.

Then watch "Death at a Funeral" the English version.

I was wondering if my family just has an abnormal tendency to find humor in tragedy, but... yeah. Walking up to the casket to pay respects and find within that casket some OTHER family's dead relative? I can picture my mother bent over, stomping the floor and gasping for air between laughing fits.

THIS, So many times over.

/Who cares how good of a job the undertaker did.
//When I do attend a "viewing" I try to sneak a business card into the coat pocket.

I do work for a mortician. (graphic design stuff). At funerals he carries a heavy duty set of wire cutters. Sometimes the family wants the wedding ring(s). If he can't get the ring off. Cut. If he has a very heavy ring to cut, guess what . . . the ring finger.
He's got some really good stories to tell, depending on how much bourbon you can get into him.

Sorry for your all's loss and heartache. All I can say is that it doesn't go go away, but it does get better.

St-Ours claims it has never placed the wrong body in a casket in 91 years of operation.

Well, except that once.
 
2012-12-20 05:32:26 PM
St-Ours admits a paperwork error that resulted in the 81-year-old woman's body being incinerated. 
 
Since this happened in Quebec, I wonder if the "paperwork error" had something to do with translating English to French or vice-versa?
 
I hear it's a touchy subject there.

I thought subby was going to say that to make it worse would be to have the Westboro Baptist Church attend.

No, she's still on the right side of the grass. My father was the guest of honor.

More like St-Ours claims it has never been caught before placing the wrong body in a casket in 91 years of operation. I bet they switch bodies around all the time and have tea parties with the corpses in the back room.

Clem, an old Newfoundlander, had a son who went to med school and ended up becoming a rich plastic surgeon in California. He was forever bugging his dad to come visit him one winter. Clem finally gives in and travels to California. Second day out, unused to traffic, he tries to cross a busy street and gets run over.
Clem's son has him cremated, then finds out Clem's sisters wanted to see him before the cremation. "What'll I do?" "No problem," says the director, "I've got another guy here, could be a twin brother to your dad. A few years younger, but they'll just figure it's all the preparation." So they get the other body into a casket for viewing.
When Clem's sisters arrive they ask to see the body straight off. Clem's son opens the lid. The two ladies stare in shock at what they think is their brother. "L'ard T'underin," says one, "Don't he look young?"
The other replies "By Jesus, Aggie, that trip down here done Clem the world o' good."
